We talk with Cliff Hazell, the latest addition to the agile42 team of coaches in Sweden
Cliff Hazell and Pascal Papathemelis will be on stage at the annual ScanAgile conference in Helsinki on March 13th-14th
We are very happy to have two great agile42 coaches presenting at ScanAgile 2019, the Scandinavian Agile Conference to be held in Helsinki on March 13th-14th. ScanAgile also displays some of the cutest conference artwork in the community!
Cliff Hazell will present Moving Beyond Cargo Cult Agile: Most companies claiming to, or wanting to, be agile, start at the team level. Often this involves adopting a model or framework that either only has those parts, or ignoring the Program and Strategy level changes. At best this inspires a change journey, but more often this yields little impact on the core business metrics.
In this session Cliff will draw in his experiences as a Product Lead in Telecoms and experience designing effective organizations at Spotify, to demonstrate how small changes in your program and portfolio layers can yield far great impact than training all your engineers in agile and checking a box.
Pascal Papathemelis will present Dammit, get together and get the job done! together with Andrey Rusetskiy: After organizations adopt Agile, they start facing new challenges related to running agile projects and coordinating multiple agile teams. Even if mechanisms to coordinate agile teams are in place, organizations face problems and bottlenecks that can’t be resolved by Scrum of Scrums or similar practices.
In their presentation, they will share how they have successfully addressed this issue, evolving their co-working practices in special events several times during development projects. The ideas are based on the principles described in the Agile Manifesto and hackathon events.
